Default Bayou Classic 44-QT Stainless Steel Stockpot w/spigot

A buddy of mine just forwarded this link to me he found on Deals.Woot!
http://www.whoaday.com/

They're selling Bayou Classic 36-QT and 44-QT stainless steel stockpot w/spigot.

I've checked around and they're by far the cheapest here. Would like some feedback if any one has used Bayou Classic stockpots before I purchase.

Many thanks.

I was looking at that myself this morning... My concern with it was the placement of the spigot. In the pictures it looks like the spigot extends down past the bottom of the pot -meaning that when I set it down in the sink/on the stove/in the cabinet it might be resting on the spigot and damaging it.

Anyone know for sure either way?

Slurm I just called their customer service and they said the spigot is raised about a 1/2 inch so that it doesn't hit the counter and damage the spigot when placed on counter.

I have one of their pots, can with my turkey fryer kit. Mine doesn't have the spigot, but it's a nice enough pot.

I've brewed 3 times with mine and I like it. The pot is sturdy and the spigot is really handy.

The only down side is the spigot isn't very well made. The port doesn't match up correctly, so you only get about half the flow you should be getting, but it does aerate the beer nicely. It works fine for now, but I might switch out the spigot with a stainless ball valve.

It's by far the best value you can find.

If you go to the bayou classic website, you can actually pick this up for $103 + $5 shipping, which is a couple bucks cheaper than the advertised special (which seems to be over now). It doesn't include the steamer/fryer basket, but who cares?

For anyone that has one of these, does it seem that the spigot could be taken off and replaced with a ball valve? I've been eyeing this for a couple days now, but I'm very dubious of the included faucet. If I knew I could swap it out, I'd definitely buy one. I have a 7.5 gallon pot right now, and I'm a little tired of playing the "will it boil over?" game every time I brew.

Thanks for the Tip on these. Not wanting the spigot I orderd the 36qt off amazon for 75. UPS droped it off today and IM really getting excited for my first brew...

The spigot comes off easily. The pot has a 1" female thread welded onto it.
